A former England Under 19 Captain, Lewis was also called in to the England ODI squad in 2015.
After signing his contract Lewis said: “I’m delighted to have signed a new contract with Somerset and I’m really excited to see what the future holds for us. I needed to take the time to explore other options for personal reasons, but I feel that staying here is what is best for me and my cricket. I feel privileged to be a part of this great club and being made Captain this season is a huge honour.
“There is a real sense of optimism around the changing room, lots of positive change going on and I am exceptionally proud to be a part of it all.”
